Agree Hobo - either we pick up a heavy weight like Roy, through free agency or trade, or we bring up Grenier and play him as 7th Defenseman when needed.
To - Bouck is below Ready on the depth chart. Ready is a better player as he demonstrated in Manitoba last year. Better scorer, tougher and better leadership. The Canucks will not be making any undue effort to adjust the roster so Bouck can be brought up and down.
Overall a bad day for the team. Lost depth on defense. Lost our only true enforcer and saw potential rival Anahiem beef up their defense by acquiring Simpson. None of which could have been avoided.
Peter G. This does not open up roster spots. If the players where better than those lost they would already be here. Maybe its no great disaster losing Langdon and Baumgartner but it certainly is never a good thing to lose organizational depth. Why try unnecesssarily to find the silver lining. It was a loss poor and simple.
This thing is a little out of order because I tried to poat but the board is so gummed up that it wouldn't post.
